Blue Jackets Jared Boll has balls and maybe now a sore head as he dropped the gloves with Predators Brian McGrattan and took a beating. With Steve MacIntyre in the minors, is McGrattan the best enforcer in the league now? I love the way McGrattan fights, just standing there throwing punches until he is tired but he does leave himself open and sooner or later he may take one that knocks him woozy. Here’s the McGrattan-Boll fight, check out the rights that land on Boll’s head.
Talking about a bad team with Columbus they also have bad broadcasters. As you listen to the Columbus broadcast during that fight they have McGrattan’s name wrong. Who is McKracken? They’re also wrong how Nashville got McGrattan. The Predators claimed McGrattan off waivers from the Ducks on October 11th during the season, not in the offseason. Columbus managed to win the game in overtime, maybe that will delay Jeff Carter’s next trade request.
And maybe it’s karma for Jared Boll that he got beat up, as two nights ago he dropped the gloves with Bruins Shawn Thornton and broke the code as he threw two punches with the linesmen between them which really pissed off Thornton. I don’t know, I’m just saying.
